Edwards enjoying process

Hyron Edwards is one of the fastest players in the nation with the ball in his hands. The 2015 floor general is currently taking a look at all of his options on the recruiting trail.

Point guard Hyron Edwards picked up a lot of offers early on, and more are sure to come in the next few months. Now the East Chicago (Ind) Central standout is just focused on getting better on the floor and going through the recruiting process off of it.

It was a tough high school year at times for Edwards, but he feels he played well and tried his best to lead his team.

"The high school season was up and down," said Edwards. "I played well, but my team we just struggled at times and we didn't always have a lot of confidence as a team."

Now he is on Indiana Elite, one of the top 16-and under teams in the country, and Edwards has high expectations for this AAU season.

"We can accomplish big things if we are all on the same page," said Edwards. "We just have to stop the big guys, talk on defense, and keep getting better."

Edwards already has offers from Illinois, Indiana, and Purdue to go along with interest from Michigan, Michigan State, Butler, and others on the recruiting trail.

Michigan has told Edwards they expect to offer this summer, and when that comes Edwards will be very happy.

"It is going to be great and just a blessing," said Edwards. "Growing up I actually liked Michigan. I like Michigan and they are one of my top schools. Glenn (Robinson), Mitch (McGary), and Spike (Albrecht) those are my guys, and they have told me great things about the school. Also when I visited there I really liked it."

Michigan's rival, Michigan State is also expected to offer this summer, and Edwards is high on the Spartans.

"Michigan State, I talk with Coach Dane Fife a lot," said Edwards. "We talk about more than basketball. We talk about school, just everything. I have made a visit there and really liked it. Michigan State is a great school."

The school closest to Edwards' hometown that is in the mix is Purdue, and the Boilermakers are working hard in the recruitment.

"We are pretty cool," said Edwards of Purdue. "It is close to home and my parents and family could see me play which is good. I like Purdue."

For now Edwards is in absolutely no hurry to make a college decision, and plans to play out the process. His focus right now is simply on getting better as a player.

"I am trying to improve my overall game and just get in the gym and get stronger and better every day," said Edwards.
